    As for Red/Blue and GSC, I can go on record and say that I can't really say those problems are deal breakers for me or for most of the people that play/ed the games. Sure, they were hard compared to the current ones, but I think most people will agree in saying that the recent games aren't that hard. I think RBY/GSC had a moderate difficulty (though I hear BW2's doing a good job bringing it back). As for post-game content, that was fine as well. Sure, there were no battle frontiers or Sevii Isles, but that didn't stop people from getting tremendous playtimes and always finding more to do. As for the type diversity and the rosters, they weren't huge problems, and they certainly weren't problems that made you want to throw your system at the wall because the forgiving nature of the pokemon series always balanced that out. Plus, as you said, those were merely technical issues, and they're hardly deal breakers. They aren't minor, but they could be fixed easily. And they were. Heck, there are people that go back to play the games because of those things. That doesn't mean we should overlook them, but the music in the first two gens was so great, and they still did well at what they did, offering memorable characters, locations, and story that people never forgot. They didn't mind the technical "problems" because they had so much fun with the game, as well as with the technical problems, that they enjoyed the problems themselves. If we were to look at each title as if they all came out at the same time, maybe outlook would be different thanks to the different features, but regardless, people like the games, especially GSC, for their merit. People like RBY/GSC not just because they were something fresh, but because they complimented each other as prequels and sequels. They had a lot to offer, and a lot of new to offer. If BW had been the second game or if DP had been the second game, all with the improvements that the games that preceded them had, they would have been meet with incredible praise because as sequels to RBY they work. However, as sequels to RSE/DPP and RSE respectively, they just don't cut it as full blown sequels.
    That's not the difficulty curve I'm talking about; I was talking about underleveled Pokemon in GSC such as Lance's underleveled Dragonites. Compared to R/B's level curve, where the Elite Four had lvl 50-60 Pokemon, it was a step backwards, especially how it made level grinding more frustrating due to the lack of lvl 50-60 wild Pokemon to battle before facing Red. I've seen some people in other Pokemon forums pointing out these technical flaws on how these games haven't aged well, because they weren't wearing any nostalgia goggles. Even the remakes failed to fix these technical problems (reworking the gym leader rosters, add more Johto Pokemon in the wild, give some Pokemon additional Ghost or Dragon typings for Agatha, Morty, Claire, and Lance's team, etc). It's these people who don't care about the technical improvements on why I worry about Pokemon's future for not being able to dethrone the first two gens, because of the broken fanbase.

    Just to move this discussion from my thread, so it doesn't become off-topic with our Pokemon talk:

    Quote:
    Now let's take Pokemon. You know, I, too, would like XY to exceed the critical acclaim that GSC did, because I loved GSC and would love for another game in the series to meet it's calibre. I don't see that happening for two reasons, though. The first reason is because of what I stated above-partially. Not only is GSC a classic, but it's a timeless classic. I could easily play GSC from beginning to end without feeling generational whiplash. This goes for RBY, too. This segues into my second point, pokemon is slow to innovate. Very. That's the reason that RSE/DPP/BW/2 aren't as lauded as the first two, because they simply feel like pretty much the same game with a modern coating and a few new features in between, but not so many that you can play the first two entries and be blown away by "how far we've come". XY hasn't really proved to be an overhaul of the franchise, and it may be the same case as the others...but it could be better. Still, I don't think that it will reach the popular heights that GSC/RBY did, and that's a good thing. As long as those two stand on top, people will demand more, and the potential for change will increase.
    Wouldn't the same apply to every other turn-based RPG? Changing the core gameplay can really hurt the franchise, just ask other franchises to did poorly for being different (Zelda II, SF Adventures, Nuts 'n' Bolts, etc.). Also, I wouldn't call the first two gens kings due to suffering a lot of technical problems such as the difficulty curve, bad type diversity, lack of more post-game content, and questionable gym leader/elite four rosters.

    Oh and I just decided to go on the Uberman schedule. (A special sleeping rythym that is supposed to make you ultra well slept...due sleep deprivation.) Meaning I take a 20 minute nap for every 2 or so hours. And the point is after 3-4 days my brain should just adapt to it etc. Lets see how it goes...

About Me

    Quick Self-Introduction
    I mod VG sometimes!
    Biography
    Biography, huh? I had something here before, but I scrapped it. And you know, let's forget about that. What's past is past, and who I am now...well, I hope you'll get to know that personally. I don't feel that I can accurately give you a sample of me in a few words and expect you to know me any better. Nah, that's for job interviews and business meetings. For me, anyways. I change fairly often and am not exactly consistent enough to put something here that I would be satisfied with.

    Nah, instead let's talk about the future, yeah? I meet and talk to a lot of people who see themselves as hopeless or try to see forward a year or two and see darkness rather than light, and things like this absolutely boggle my mind. After all, what is the future but a playground for possibility?

    I suppose that view sounds fairly optimistic, but I wouldn't say it actually is. In fact, I dare say that the beauty of possibility is that it encompasses the best case, the worst case, and every shade in between. An infinite number of shades for an infinite number of possibilities. And what is the future if not the literal culmination of innumerable possibilities? Honestly, I think the thought's pretty exciting! Even taking into account the amount of crap that may include.

    With that in mind, let's talk about dreams. Dreams are goals. Dreams are hopes. But most importantly, dreams aren't dreams unless you let them be. Cheesy as that may sound. You, whoever you are, are capable of far more than you think you are. If there's a specific future you seek, it's possible to obtain. Unlike most things, it really is that simple. And this goes the other way, too. Feeling bad for yourself and looking at a grim future will generally create a rather unfortunate self-fulfilling prophecy. So if that's not what you want, don't.

    Personally, I love the future for all of its wonderful colors and shades, that it brings excitements and anticipation just as it brings fear and despair. And its vastness is awe-inspiring. Absolutely awe-inspiring.

    Anyway. Why am I going on about this? I dunno, this space was empty and at the time of writing, my VMs are disabled. But I suppose I'll just cap this off by saying that if you ever feel like you're stuck between two choices, there most certainly is a third. And a fourth. And a fifth even. The future is as vast as you make it, and if we had a visible roadmap detailing the possible actions we could have taken at any given moment in our lives, I imagine everyone, dead or alive, would feel pretty silly.
